I always have a constant struggle of taking a break from the summer's exhausting circuit and want to take some time off to simply relax but come Fall those Holiday shows beckon. I'm never ready for them....and rather than chastise myself for it I've learned that perhaps that 's not the way for me to go. My rhythm changes and so does my work....
This year I decided instead of regretting that I wasn't ready with the holiday stuff I'd look to place my work with gallery/shops for the winter and explore scheduling a solo show for the up coming year. This has given me new energy to work instead of guilty regrets. I've placed my work in three shops so far, giving my work an opportunity to be seen and sell rather than gracing my own walls through out the winter season. I've scheduled a solo for November 2015, far enough away to explore a theme for the show but within a reasonably short time to keep preparing with a deadline.
Understanding myself as an artist and my work habits has come after many years of experiencing the highs and lows of working everyday. The "everyday" has been my key to self discovery. I am in charge of what I do or don't do....Are you?
So Ready, Set ....GO!
My work is available at the following Gallery/Shops for this winter:
- The Noyes Museum Shop- Hammonton, NJ
- Idiosyncrazies, Pt. Pleasant Beach,NJ
- Picture Perfect Gallery, NJ
- Solo show: November 2015 @ Idiosyncrazies, Pt. Pleasant Beach, NJ
I am always adding new work to my web site: www.helenharrispaintings.com and have paypal options to purchase directly from me on the site for work that has not been placed with galleries.
I hope you'll take a moment to visit!
